I also tried to create a new cover for the book, but it's less as half as good as yours. Your one is awsome!
If i would see that book in the store i would buy it imidietly.

Wow, that is one gorgeous book cover. :O A lot cooler than the actual covers of the book I've seen. I don't really have much in the way of constructive criticism, as there isn't really anything I don't like about it. However, I am adding this to my faves. ^_^

This is almost too good to be used on the book. If I ever finish writing one, and I need a cover for it, I'll be giving you a call. And I mean that literally.

Very sophisticated and stylish, and the one of your designs I like most. I wish publishers could bring themselves to choosing more designs like this, instead the dreadful blurb-ridden, fairground non-design they think they need.

Mr. Michał Karcz, I must admit that I am very impressed with your work. Your photomanipulations are extraordinary and I am sure that you are one of the greatest artists in this community.

Cheers from Romania.

I like the book cover format you are doing,it brings your work into a different plane.This is very good.Was it in this one that they found the stele/tablet of stone and said that line thats haunted me eversince...My God its full of stars...was that what they said???

Excellent - when you say non-commissioned, do you mean it isn't in use as a book cover?

I remember that film VERY well! Great it was too, and I got fired for the only time in my life when I once worked (for a day) for Stanley Khubrik!!!! Probably spelt his name wrong now, but it was my moment of fame, and it was without even meeting him. I simply kept accidentally pressing his phone button for putting calls through, when it should have been someone else. He fired me over the tannoy system!!!!!!!!

Really good work! I especially like the backside :) My only little critique would be that the 2001 and the A SPACE ODYSSES arent alligned perfectly. I think it would look better if they would be the same width...
